I would check the CPS and see if it needs replaced. Its a pretty simply job, do you have any problems starting the car? Does it idle roughly?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiQ4W-fhy4g This video shows the ETC on a dodge vehicle. It is for Throttle Control. When the CPS goes out the ETC light illuminates to tell you that the car isn't idling properly. They call them "dummy lights" for a reason, have you had the codes pulled for the car?
